Double bass build!
Thought some people might be interested in the double bass that i'm building.
I've nearly finished building a violin and have started building a double bass. If any one is interested take a look here
There are photo's of both instruments through out their building process.
If anyone has any questions please ask.
And looking forward to using this site.
Thanks for sharing your violin build Ben, really enjoyed watching (and listening) to it.
Looking forward to your DB build.
Sorry, if you look furthur down the page, you can see photos of the double bass build.
Lookin' great Ben!
Don't be afraid to spice up the paint a little:
very nice! cant wait to see the finished product....i am also building another bass right now, though much different than yours, and not nearly as professional looking. i posted some info on my first build here http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f164/3...oject-1053453/.
what kind of wood are you using for the sides? im trying to get some tips and pointers on wood and bending techniques.
Looks great. Can't wait to see more pics.
Thanks for the interest. The back and sides are maple. Bending was interesting! Tough bending things so thick. Best advice I can say its go dead slow, and make sure your iron is hot enough. It will get there.
Hello Ben, very nice job. I'm building a violin right now, at this moment i'm carving the scroll. When this violin is finished i'm going to build a db also.
Kind regards from Holland
